In addition to the usual Christmas movie goodness, the December Star of the Month is fan favorite Barbara Stanwyck.
Over 50 Stanwyck films will be run on Wednesday evenings and on into each Thursday, in some cases for marathons for close to 24 hours.
Some other random titles of interest to me: a new-to-me movie starring Susan Peters, ASSIGNMENT IN BRITTANY (1943), costarring Jean-Pierre Aumont; CARNIVAL STORY (1954) with Steve Cochran and Anne Baxter; FLIGHT FROM DESTINY (1941) with Geraldine Fitzgerald and Jeffrey Lynn; a Ginger Rogers film I don't know, TWIST OF FATE (1954); and perhaps best of all, a multi-film birthday tribute to Una Merkel...which seems to simultaneously be a tribute to the lovely Madge Evans, with Evans appearing in at least four of the films. Only on TCM!
There are also plenty of Christmas movies, Ernst Lubitsch, "B" Westerns, film noir, and New Year's Eve with Abbott and Costello. A great month ahead!
Until then, the current Star of the Month is Spencer Tracy, and November should be a very interesting month with Constance Bennett as that month's star.
